The first day our professor challenged us to get to know someone we didn’t know. I looked around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder. I turned around to find a wrinkled, little old lady smiling at me.

    She said, “Hi, handsome. My name is Rose. I’m 87. Can I give you a hug?” I laughed, “Of course you may!” and she gave me a big and powerful hug. “Why are you in college at such a young, innocent age?” I asked. She jokingly replied, “I’m here to meet a rich husband, get married, and have a couple of children.” “No seriously,” I said. “I want to realize my dream!” she told me. Over the course of the year, Rose became a campus icon and everyone liked to listen to this “time machine”.

    At the end of the semester we invited Rose to speak at our football dinner and I’ll never forget what she taught us. “There is a huge difference between growing older and growing up. If you are 19 and lie in bed for one full year and don’t do one productive thing, you will turn 20. If I am 87 and stay in bed for a year and never do anything I will turn 88. We have less time to live on. Anybody can grow older. That doesn’t take any talent or ability. The idea is to grow up by always finding opportunity in change. The elderly usually don’t have regrets for what we did, but rather for things we did not do.”

    At the year’s end, Rose finished the college degree she had dreamed about all those years. One week after graduation Rose died peacefully in her sleep. Over 2,000 students attended her funeral honoring the wonderful woman who taught us such an important message.

24. From the underlined sentence in Paragraph 2, we can learn that ______.

A. the writer didn’t believe Rose was as old as she said

B. going to college at a very old age is looked down upon

C. Rose looked younger than her real age in the writer’s eyes

D. it is not polite to talk about a person’s real age in public

25. Rose was considered a “time machine” because she _____.

A. always followed a strict time schedule

B. was never late for any of her classes

C. had lived a long and rich life

D. always appeared in time whenever she was needed

26. According to Rose, growing up is different from growing older because _______.

A. growing up means one has more chances or time to choose what one likes 

B. growing up means young people have enough time to waste

C. there is no need for one to worry about death

D. growing up doesn’t need as much effort or talent as growing older

27. Rose came to study in college at such an old age for the purpose of __________.

A. challenging her old age   

B. realizing her long dream about college education

C. meeting someone rich and attractive

D. not having any regrets in her life

 

C

Compared to people with bad attitudes, people who are cheerful and relaxed are less likely to suffer from colds, according to a new study. “It’s possible that being upbeat helps the body fight illnesses,” says psychologist Sheldon Cohen, the study’s lead researcher.

In a previous study, Cohen and his colleagues put cold-causing viruses into the noses of 334 healthy adults. People who tended to be cheerful and lively were least likely to develop cold symptoms and were also less likely to mention symptoms to their doctors, even when medical tests discovered those symptoms.  

Those findings could explain the role positive feelings played, but it was still possible that a person’s personality is what matters. Evidence suggests that certain people are naturally more likely to be outgoing and optimistic. This would mean that who we are, not how we feel, decides our chances of catching colds.

To figure out which mattered more, the team interviewed 193 healthy adults. The researchers interviewed each person over the phone every evening for 2 weeks. At the end of the interviewing period, people got nose drops that contained either cold or flu viruses. Then, each person stayed in an isolated(隔离的)room for 5 or 6 days.

The results showed that everyone in the study was equally likely to get infected. Their symptoms, however, differed depending on the types of emotions that they had reported over the previous 2 weeks. Among those who reported good moods and had been infected with the flu virus, 28 percent developed coughs and stuffy noses. On the other hand, those symptoms struck 41 percent of people who had been less cheerful.

Scientists argue about whether negative emotions or positive emotions have a stronger impact on how healthy we are. For now, it won’t hurt to look on the bright side more often than not!

28. The underlined word “upbeat” in the first paragraph probably means “           ”.

A. strong            B. optimistic      C. friendly     D. independent

29. In the previous study, researchers found that _______.

A. cheerful people didn’t get infected with cold viruses

B. a person’s attitude determined whether he would get sick

C. medical tests couldn’t find cold symptoms in cheerful people

D. a cheerful attitude may reduce the chances of getting ill

30. During the study, 193 healthy adults were told to report _____.

A. the feelings they experienced every day

B. any cold symptoms that appeared every day

C. their daily activities    

D. their daily state of health

31. It can be inferred that a person’s _______ has a big effect on how healthy we are.

A. Emotional(情感的)state          B. personality

C. age                                   D. exercise regime(方法)

D

It’s a familiar feeling. Your friend has made the team for Saturday’s big game, and you take a certain pleasure in telling him you can’t be there to watch him play. You smile, but that voice in you asks, why him and not you?

Envy is a fault that we like to keep secret. It raises its ugly head when we focus on what we want but don’t possess now, or we may even wish for and take pleasure in someone losing it. Feelings of unfairness are part of being human, but when you focus on them, you can never get out of your dark emotions. And that makes you feel bad.

So is there a solution? Is there anything you can do to stop the most ungenerous emotions?

Well, why not turn envy on its head, and make it the encouragement you need for self-improvement? The best weapon against envy is not to compete where you can’t shine, but to do your absolute best where you can.

Start by making peace with yourself, and accept the gifts which make you unique. Make an agreement with yourself to be the best you can be. Then find out exactly the circumstances and qualities in others that start your envy. Is it someone’s singing voice, their work promotion or their new car? Envy shows us the things we’d like to have, so make up a plan to earn what’s important to you. Sign up for a night class. Start a training program. Give up a treat or two, and start saving for what you want.

And aim for real pleasure in the achievements and good fortune of others. Cheer on your friend when he scores that goal. Enjoy your best friend’s wedding day. Then go out and do something special, and make yourself wonderfully proud of you.

32. The first paragraph is intended to ______.

A. introduce the topic       B. tell the main idea       

C. ask questions           D. give examples

33. When envy appears, we actually______.

A. ignore its existence            B. share it with friends

C. have feelings of unfairness        D. lose something of our own

34. What is the best way to help stop envy?

A. Developing your own strengths to the full.

B. Competing for what you are not good at.   

C. Forgetting about the things you can’t get.         

D. Trying to get anything that makes you envy.

35. How does the author sound in the passage?

A. Unconcerned      B. Worried           C. Subjective      D. Objective

 

第二节 七选五(共5小题:每小题2分,满分10分)

  Whether you’re a child, teenager, young adult or are middle-aged, respect for your parents is an important value. Your parents are the people who raised you, devoting time, energy and money to your development  .36  Whatever your age, there are five ways to show respect .

作文

Dear Jenny,

    How nice to hear from you! In your letter you asked me how to keep healthy. I would like to give you some advice.

    As we know, we teenagers grow very fast, so we need plenty of nutritious food, such as fish, beans, fresh fruit and vegetables. You should not eat too much meat or too many sweets. Also, you should take physical exercise regularly instead of studying all the time. For example, you can play basketball or swim after school. What's more, having enough sleep is very important. So I advise you to have at least eight hours of sleep every day and not to stay up too late. Only in this way can we keep fit.

      

       Yours,

       Li Hua
